Seville s Solar Power Tower

En Sevilla un campo de 600 espejos reflejan la luz a esta torre.

It is Europe's first commercially operating power station using the Sun's energy this way and at the moment its operator, Solucar, proudly claims that it generates 11 Megawatts (MW) of electricity without emitting a single puff of greenhouse gas. This current figure is enough to power up to 6,000 homes.But ultimately, the entire plant should generate as much power as is used by the 600,000 people of Seville.
It works by focusing the reflected rays on one location, turning water into steam and then blasting it into turbines to generate power.

Me hace gracia el artículo que dice que se parece a la torre de Sauron en Mordor
